NHSRF Launching a trio of fellowship cruises with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines

Would you like to sail Norway’s spectacular fjords, cruise the Seine or visit the Christmas Markets of Denmark and Germany? 

You can do all this and more with our fantastic members’ group holiday offers with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines.

Award-winning Fred. Olsen has teamed up with the National Health Service (NHS) Retirement Fellowship to give members the chance to join any (or all!) of three specially selected ‘Group Fellowship Cruises’ in 2018.

Three not-to-be-missed cruises are: 

Lovatnet Lake Norway

Black Watch’s eight-night W1807 ‘Fjords, Mountains and Glaciers’ cruise, departing from Liverpool on 26th April 2018. Guests can discover the breathtaking Norwegian scenery while gliding along the enchanting UNESCO-listed Nærøyfjord, only accessible to smaller ships like Black Watch. 

Braemar’s five-night M1827 ‘Cruising the Seine’ sailing, departing from Southampton on 3rd November 2018. Guests can enjoy scenic cruising and visit inspirational landmarks, such as the picturesque harbour of Honfleur and the best of romantic Paris (on a tour from Rouen). 


Balmoral’s eight-night L1838 ‘Christmas Markets of Germany & Denmark’ cruise, departing from Southampton on 13th December 2018. Guests have the chance to sample mulled wine and gingerbread on a magical adventure to three enticing destinations: Bremen, Copenhagen and Denmark.

A group booking with Fred. Olsen brings a multitude of benefits. Members can enjoy preferential group prices, free on board spend, and an exclusive NHS Retirement Fellowship drinks party on every cruise. 

Fred. Olsen’s fleet of four smaller, more intimate ocean liners – BalmoralBraemarBoudicca and Black Watch – can take guests right to the heart of a destination; they can dock a short walk from world-famous cities and sail down narrow waterways and fjords that are inaccessible to the larger cruise liners.  Add to this fabulous food, a home-from-home atmosphere and a friendly, bespoke service and it is easy to see why Fred. Olsen has been crowned ‘Best Cruise Line Operator for Groups’ for seven years running.
